Consider Buying the Real Thing When Buying an Engagement Ring

When shopping for an engagement ring, you could be wondering whether you're really going to be able to purchase the perfect diamond ring. A lot of people are opting out of natural diamonds nowadays simply because of the cost. It's totally understandable, of course, and as long as you and the love of your life feel that the ring truly speaks to your unique love story, there's nothing to worry about. If you'd prefer to have a real ring to present at this milestone moment but are simply worried about cost, though, we have good news for you. It's entirely possible to buy a real white gold engagement ring -- or another "real" ring -- without busting your budget. With a little bit of necessary information about your budget and preferences, we can help you buy the perfect engagement ring for a much lower price.


Sterling Silver vs. Gold for an Engagement Ring

Sterling silver is a practical choice for jewelry. It looks good and lasts longer than some metals. However, when it comes to something as important as an engagement ring or wedding band, you may want to opt for white gold, yellow gold, or rose gold. The value will align more with the value of your valuable center stone, for one thing. The ring will be more valuable, and you may like how it looks better, too. White gold is usually brighter than sterling silver, and perhaps you'd prefer yellow gold or rose gold instead of a silvertone or white gold look.


Sterling silver is more likely to tarnish than gold, so when it comes to a ring that will be worn every day, you may want to consider gold instead. Luckily, it's possible to buy an affordable, real gold engagement ring or wedding ring. Come see us at Greenbrier Pawn for options in 10K, 14K, or 18K gold!

Engagement Ring With Natural Diamonds vs. Lab-Grown Diamonds?

Maybe you've heard that lab-grown diamonds have been growing in popularity in recent years. It's true that there are lab-grown diamond collections out there that are very popular, but if you're like many people, you simply might prefer a natural mined diamond, particularly when buying something as important as an engagement ring. If this is the type of engagement ring you want but you're worried about your budget, don't stress. Visit Greenbrier Pawn, where we sell natural diamond rings for a fair price. Whether you're looking for a diamond with a small carat weight, a much bigger carat weight, or somewhere in-between, we have you covered.


Alternative Engagement Ring Stones | Moissanite, White Sapphire or Cubic Zirconia?

Maybe you have been looking into even more affordable alternative stones for your ring. Maybe you've heard about moissanite, white sapphire, or cubic zirconia. Of course, there are pretty rings out there that feature these stones, but they simply don't have the same look as a natural diamond. A diamond is a timeless design that sparkles and shines, and it should hold its value very well, too. If the engagement ring of her dreams involves one or more diamonds, there's no reason to settle for less. You don't have to spend months of your salary to buy a real diamond ring, either. Instead, visit us at Greenbrier Pawn...we always have new arrivals in stock, so you can find a beautiful unique engagement ring with diamonds for a great price here.
